Use RtmpSrv. It is bundled with rtmpdmp v.21 onwards: As of 2.1 there are two additional server programs, rtmpsrv and rtmpsuck. rtmpsrv is a stub for a server; it logs the connect and play parameters from a regular client that connects to it. It then invokes rtmpdump with those parameters to retrieve the stream. Usage rtmpdump -r rtmp://flash....

Nope - See sites like this all the time, all pirate. Avoid at all cost. ... As a reseller, I can tell you that cost price for physical media is much higher.

Use thttpd. thttpd -d /home/bob/sharedfolder -p 8080 The directory /home/bob/sharedfolder would become accessible at http://address:8080. lighttpd can be used in a similar way, although it needs a tiny config file.

It depends on a few factors. Do you have a stable internet connection? If you have a stable internet connection, you do not need to check the integrety of the file as it will most likely be correct. I never check the hash and I also never have had corrupt files. Or maybe one time when the remote server disconnected. Do you want to verify the file based on ...

There are a few ways that a website might interfere with a download-manager: The URL to the file is not actually to the file, it is to a page which automatically redirects to the file (this is what you saw). Depending on how the server is configured, and how the download-manager works, the redirect page may not be providing the right information (e.g., ...

The answer and choice one makes is going to be based on his/her risk tolerance and considerations of time and effort in verification. Checking MD5/SHA1 hashes is a good first step and you should do it when you have time. However, you must consider your ability to trust the hash provided. For example, if the the author's website with the hash is hacked, then ...

Short answer: NO. However, sites often provide a checksum such as SHA1 or MD5 to help you verify a successful download. You can create the checksum and then Google it. For example, I have a file: VMware-workstation-full-7.1.0-261024.exe which has SHA1 checksum: 5512cb520fc91b8c4ee9b0d6f80d1cfecb0fe50f When I Google the checksum I get the VMware ...

Free Download Manager is an open source download manager with a powerful scheduler that will let you do exactly what you need. You can create tasks to start all downloads at midnight every night and a 2nd task to stop them all at 5 am. The forum also contains links to the newest beta builds from the developers. They've been, in my experience, very stable.

For security reasons, YES. Consider that a Tor exit node was found to be patching binaries during download, then remember that your ISP may or may not have the slightest morals, and that they are in complete control of your internet connection.

I have a modified apt-cyg that runs the installer from the local archive. It really should be submitted as a patch, but never had the time to clean it up, so here goes.

I usually use the "download to local directory" option in the standard installer, and select the packages I want in a base installation. That downloads the packages I want but doesn't install, and I can copy that package directory to a network share or thumbdrive. Add a copy of the Cygwin setup.exe to that local directory, and you've got yourself an ...

I think any decent download manager has this feature... Googling it, the second result I found is free download manager, free and open source, and the feature list mentions "powerful scheduler", so I guess that would do.

In OS X, it is stored in the file's metadata (right-click > Get Info). I don't have an active Windows install to check, but it may be recorded in the same way by the OS there, too (right-click > Properties). I'm not sure about that, but you could give it a try.

Sometimes it is possible to bypass limitations in the server by opening multiple connections. But these restrictions were probably put there for a reason and by deliberately avoiding them you might be breaking the terms of service for the site. Do this with caution.

If she cannot install anything on the laptop, you could upload the .ISO to some web space, or host it on IIS on your computer (forwarding port 80 from your router).
